Intro

The faculty of SAgE is made up of 10 schools which all contribute to the multidisciplinary nature of the faculty.

After the success of the construction sector in the Olympic Games, the faculty wanted to understand how they could infuse their learning content to reflect inclusive design principles and diversity and equality best practice.

Our aim was to provide a unique differentiator and also recognize the contemporary challenges that construction and built environment professionals are required to have as an essential part of their competency toolkit.
